TOYOTA RAV4 Vehicle Speed Control

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 Vehicle Speed Control Report #10378897

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 car safety problem was reported on Dec 19, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2011, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . ON DEC. 11, 2010, I PURCHASED MY 2011 RAV4. SINCE THAT TIME, I HAVE HAD TO CONTACT TOYOTA AND THE DEALER AND TAKE MY RAV4 TO THE DEALER SERVICE DEPT. MULTIPLE TIMES DUE TO UNINTENDED ACCELERATION. EACH TIME I WAS TOLD NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH THE VEHICLE. THIS UNINTENDED ACCELERATION OCCURS RANDOMLY WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKES AND IS MORE POWERFUL WITH EACH EPISODE. WHEN I DEPRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL, THE ENGINE REVS VERY LOUDLY AND THE VEHICLE FEELS AS THOUGH IT WILL SPEED IN WHATEVER GEAR I AM IN (I.E., DRIVE OR REVERSE). IN ORDER TO KEEP THE VEHICLE UNDER CONTROL, I HAVE TO KEEP THE BRAKE DEPRESSED, ENGAGE THE EMERGENCY BRAKE, SHIFT INTO PARK AND TURN OFF THE ENGINE. ON THE LAST OCCURRENCE - JAN. 2, 2011 - THE ENGINE REVVED SO STRONGLY THE FRONT END SHOOK VIOLENTLY AND WE COULD SMELL THE ENGINE OVERHEATING. ON JAN. 2ND, THE RAV4 HAD TO BE TOWED ON A FLATBED TO THE DEALER WHERE IT REMAINED FOR 2 WEEKS AWAITING TOYOTA TECH'S. WHEN THE TOYOTA TECH'S FINALLY MADE IT TO THE DEALER, THEY DOWNLOADED THE ONBOARD DATA AND TOOK IT TO THEIR LAB TO ANALYZE. ONCE I AGAIN, I WAS TOLD, ¿NOTHING IS WRONG WITH THIS RAV4; IT DOES NOT HAVE A PROBLEM¿. IT IS CLEAR TO ME EITHER TOYOTA DOES NOT HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY IN PLACE TO RECORD AND DIAGNOSE THIS REAL AND DANGEROUS PROBLEM OR THEY REFUSE TO ADMIT THEIR VEHICLES HAVE A PROBLEM. I CANNOT CONTINUE TO DRIVE THIS VEHICLE, PUTTING MY LIFE AND THE SAFETY OF THE PUBLIC IN DANGER. THIS RAV4 NEEDS TO BE RETURNED TO TOYOTA SO THEY CAN IDENTIFY AND CORRECT THIS DEFECT. .Mileage was 165 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTMBF4DV8BD. Toyota Rav4 2011 problem was reported in BRAINTREE, MA. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 15 mph.

I ALSO NOTICE THAT AS I AM DRIVING, THE FUEL GAUGE NEEDLE IS MOVING DOWNWARD. NO ONE SEEMS TO TAKE MY COMPLAINT SERIOUSLY AND I AM ALWAYS FED THE STORY OF HOW WELL MADE AND SOPHISTICATED THAT THE ENGINE AND COMPONENTS ARE. I HAVE BEEN PURCHASING TOYOTA CERTIFIED USED VEHICLES FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD ANY COMPLAINTS. THIS IS MY FIRST BRAND NEW VEHICLE AND I AM REGRETTING PURCHASING IT. I WANT THIS MATTER THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATED BUT I AM ALWAYS TOLD THE SAME THING.

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 car safety problem was reported on June 30, 2011.TOYOTA RAV4 2011, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . THIS COMPLAINT RELATES TO THE VEHICLE I LEASE, BUT I SUSPECT IT APPLIES TO ALL TOYOTA RAV4 MODELS OF THIS SAME DESIGN VINTAGE, AND MAY ALSO APPLY TO OTHER TOYOTA MODELS. THE BASIC PROBLEM, AS SHOWN IN THE ANNOTATED PHOTO AVAILABLE AT HTTP://JRGSPACE.HOMESTEAD.COM/RAV4_ENGINEERING_DESIGN_FAIL__1.JPG IS THE INADEQUATE SPACING BETWEEN THE ACCELERATOR AND BRAKE PEDALS, WHICH ALLOWS EVEN RELATIVELY SMALL SHOES TO SIMULTANEOUSLY DEPRESS BOTH PEDALS DURING "URGENT", OR EVEN "NORMAL" BRAKING SITUATIONS. THE PROBLEM IS EXACERBATED BY THE FACT THAT THE POINT (OR PLANE) AT WHICH EFFECTIVE BRAKING IS ACHIEVED IS AT LEAST 1/2" BELOW OR "BEYOND" THE PLANE OF THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL, ALMOST GUARANTEEING THE APPLICATION OF POWER DURING BRAKING. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE ENGINEERING DESIGN FAILURE AND WILL ALMOST ASSUREDLY LEAD TO ACCIDENTS IF IT HAS NOT ALREADY DONE SO, AS I HAVE NARROWLY AVOIDED SEVERAL ACCIDENTS MYSELF ALREADY WHERE THIS INTERFERENCE WAS A FACTOR. I CONSIDER THIS AN EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS CONDITION AND SHOULD BE ADDRESSED BY THE NHTSA AS A TOP PRIORITY. *TR.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):2T3BF4DV8BW.

WHEN EVER THE STEERING WHEEL IS TURNED TO THE LEFT OR RIGHT, IT MAKES A CLUNKING NOISE AND A CLUNK CAN ALSO BE FELT IN THE STEERING WHEEL AT THE SAME TIME.

WHEN THERE IS NO STEERING INPUT, THERE IS NO NOISE OR CLUNKING FELT IN THE WHEEL AT ANY SPEED, ONLY WHEN THE STEERING WHEEL IS TURNED IN EITHER DIRECTION. I HAD REPORTS OF THIS BY OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS ABOUT A YEAR PRIOR, BUT WHENEVER I DROVE IT, IT DID NOT OCCUR, AS IT WAS INTERMITTENT AT THAT TIME. IT NOW CLUNKS CONSISTENTLY WHENEVER THE WHEEL IS TURNED. *TR.Mileage was 61077 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTMBK31V375. Toyota Rav4 2011 problem was reported in HEREFORD, AZ.

TOYOTA RAV4 Service Brakes

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 Service Brakes Report #10460922

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 car safety problem was reported on Dec 29, 2011.TOYOTA RAV4 2011, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . I HAVE A SERIOUS CONCERN OVER THE DESIGN OF THE BRAKE AND GAS PEDAL WIDTH ON MY 2011 TOYOTA RAV. MY PROBLEM IS THAT MY DRESS SHOES AND RECREATION BOOTS ARE GETTING CAUGHT ON THE BRAKE PEDAL WHEN I SWIVEL FROM THE GAS TO THE BRAKE PEDAL. ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS, I CAME CLOSE TO SERIOUS ACCIDENTS. I AVOIDED THE ACCIDENTS BY QUICKLY SLIDING MY RIGHT FOOT TO THE RIGHT AND COMPLETELY LIFTING MY FOOT UP AND OVER TO THE BRAKE PEDAL. DURING ONE OF THESE MANEUVERS, MOVING MY RIGHT FOOT QUICKLY TO THE RIGHT RESULTED IN THE LIP OF THE SOLE ON THE RIGHT SIDE HITTING THE GAS PEDAL AND CAUSING ACCELERATION OF THE VEHICLE. THIS PROBLEM DOES NOT OCCUR WHEN I WEAR SNEAKERS, AS THE SOLE OF THE SNEAKER DOES NOT HAVE AN APPROXIMATE HALF-INCH LIP ON THE SIDES. ALSO AND MOST IMPORTANT, I DRIVE A TOYOTA HIGHLANDER AND THIS PROBLEM DOES NOT HAPPEN. I ALSO DID NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM WITH MY CAMRY, WHICH I TRADED IN FOR THE RAV. THE ABOVE VEHICLES HAS CLOSE TO A FIVE INCH WIDTH SEPARATION BETWEEN THE BRAKE AND GAS PEDALS. I'VE BROUGHT THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF MY TOYOTA DEALER AND THE MAINTENANCE MANAGER. THEY HAVE BEEN RESPONSIVE OF MY CONCERN, FORWARDING MY COMPLAINT TO THE AREA MAINTENANCE MANAGER. I MET WITH THE AREA MANAGER EXPLAINING THE PROBLEM.

TOYOTA RAV4 Fuel/propulsion System

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 Fuel/propulsion System Report #10460922

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 car safety problem was reported on Dec 29, 2011.TOYOTA RAV4 2011, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . I HAVE A SERIOUS CONCERN OVER THE DESIGN OF THE BRAKE AND GAS PEDAL WIDTH ON MY 2011 TOYOTA RAV. MY PROBLEM IS THAT MY DRESS SHOES AND RECREATION BOOTS ARE GETTING CAUGHT ON THE BRAKE PEDAL WHEN I SWIVEL FROM THE GAS TO THE BRAKE PEDAL. ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS, I CAME CLOSE TO SERIOUS ACCIDENTS. I AVOIDED THE ACCIDENTS BY QUICKLY SLIDING MY RIGHT FOOT TO THE RIGHT AND COMPLETELY LIFTING MY FOOT UP AND OVER TO THE BRAKE PEDAL. DURING ONE OF THESE MANEUVERS, MOVING MY RIGHT FOOT QUICKLY TO THE RIGHT RESULTED IN THE LIP OF THE SOLE ON THE RIGHT SIDE HITTING THE GAS PEDAL AND CAUSING ACCELERATION OF THE VEHICLE. THIS PROBLEM DOES NOT OCCUR WHEN I WEAR SNEAKERS, AS THE SOLE OF THE SNEAKER DOES NOT HAVE AN APPROXIMATE HALF-INCH LIP ON THE SIDES. ALSO AND MOST IMPORTANT, I DRIVE A TOYOTA HIGHLANDER AND THIS PROBLEM DOES NOT HAPPEN. I ALSO DID NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM WITH MY CAMRY, WHICH I TRADED IN FOR THE RAV. THE ABOVE VEHICLES HAS CLOSE TO A FIVE INCH WIDTH SEPARATION BETWEEN THE BRAKE AND GAS PEDALS. I'VE BROUGHT THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF MY TOYOTA DEALER AND THE MAINTENANCE MANAGER. THEY HAVE BEEN RESPONSIVE OF MY CONCERN, FORWARDING MY COMPLAINT TO THE AREA MAINTENANCE MANAGER. I MET WITH THE AREA MANAGER EXPLAINING THE PROBLEM. HE PROCEEDED TO TAKE PICTURES OF MY SHOES AND THE 3 INCH WIDTH BETWEEN THE BRAKE AND GAS PEDALS. THAT MEETING ENDED WITH THE AREA MANAGER OPENING A CASE AND THE PROMISE HE WOULD REFER MY PROBLEM TO HIS APPROPRIATE MANAGEMENT. TO DATE, MY CASE IS STILL WITH TOYOTA.

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 car safety problem was reported on Oct 20, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2011, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . WHEN APPROACHING A RED LIGHT AT AN INTERSECTION AND ALMOST STOPPED, THE ENGINE STARTED TO RACE, SOUNDING LIKE A JET ENGINE TAKING OFF. IN SPITE OF PUTTING MY FULL FORCE ON THE BRAKE, THE CAR KEPT JERKING FORWARD INTO THE INTERSECTION. FINALLY, AT MY WIFE'S SCREAMED INSTRUCTION, I SLAMMED THE CAR INTO PARK. THIS FINALLY STOPPED THE ENGINE. WE WERE FRIGHTENED TO DEATH. I DO NOT BELIEVE MY WIFE COULD HAVE STOPPED THE CAR WITHOUT AN ACCIDENT. WE WERE LUCKY THAT THERE WAS NO CAR IN FRONT OF US OR SOMEONE WOULD HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY HURT. I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO THE DEALER AND EXPLAINED TO THEM WHAT HAD HAPPENED AND THAT WE WERE AFRAID TO DRIVE THE CAR. AT THEIR QUESTION, I TOLD THEM THAT THE FLOOR MATS WERE TOYOTA'S AND CAME WITH THE CAR. THREE HOURS LATER, THEY CALLED TO TELL ME THAT THE COMPUTER AND A TEST DRIVE FOUND NOTHING WRONG; PICK UP THE CAR. I THEN CALLED THE TOYOTA COMPLAINT OFFICE TO MAKE AN OFFICIAL COMPLAINT. HOWEVER, THEIR PROCESS IS TO MERELY SEND THE DEALER'S DATA TO THE REGIONAL OFFICE, WHO, OF COURSE, FOUND NOTHING WRONG. IN THE MEANTIME, I CONTINUED TO GET SEVERAL CALLS FROM VARIOUS DEALER PERSONNEL TO PICK UP THE CAR. NO SYMPATHY WAS EVER EXPRESSED. SINCE NEITHER MY WIFE NOR I COULD EVER FEEL SAFE IN THE CAR, I SOLD IT BACK TO THE DEALER FOR A BIG LOSS. WE DON'T WANT TO FEEL RESPONSIBLE FOR ENDANGERING OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES. THIS PROBLEM WITH TOYOTA CARS IS NOT RESOLVED. IT MUST BE FURTHER INVESTIGATED. IN FACT, THIS CAR HAD ANOTHER INCIDENT PREVIOUSLY WHERE THE MOTOR ROARED AT AN INTERSECTION, HOWEVER WITHOUT LASTING LONG ENOUGH TO START MOVING THE CAR. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 10647 miles.

WHILE BACKING INTO A PARKING SPOT AFTER APPLYING THE BRAKE THE VEHICLE JERKED BACK SEVERAL TIMES NO MATER HOW HARD I APPLIED THE BRAKE I COULD NOT STOP IT. I WAS GOING ABOUT 5 MILES OR LESS PER HR.

SHE WAS VERY SCARED, THANKFULLY NO CAR WAS COMING WHEN THIS HAPPENED. WE TOOK IT TO TOYOTA AND OF COURSE THEY FOUND NOTHING THEY TOLD US WE HIT THE WRONG PEDDLE (THREE DIFFERENT TIMES) WHICH WE DID NOT. AND SO DID THE THOUSANDS OF OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAVE COMPLAINED AND THEN HURRIED US ON OUR WAY. HOW MANY TIMES DOES THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN TO PEOPLE BEFORE TOYOTA IS FORCED TO DO SOMETHING? FROM WHAT I HAVE READ IT SEEMS TO HAVE STARTED WHEN CAR COMPANY'S WENT FROM ACCELERATOR CABLES TO COMPUTER SENSORS AND ELECTRIC MOTORS. SO ALL I CAN DO IS FILE A COMPLAINT AND HOPE THE EVERYBODY ELSE THAT HAS ENCOUNTERS THIS PROBLEM WILL DO THE SAME SO MAYBE IF ENOUGH PEOPLE DO SOMETHING WILL BE DONE. WE WERE GOING TO TRADE IT IN BUT DOING RESEARCH WE CAN'T SEEM TO FIND A NEWER VEHICLE THAT HASN'T HAD THIS COMPLAINT.

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 car safety problem was reported on Jan 06, 2014.TOYOTA RAV4 2011, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . ON 1/6/14 I WAS COMING TO AN INTERSECTION AND I WAS SLOWING DOWN. I NOTICED THAT THE ENGINE WAS RAVING AND WAS TRYING TO PULL ME FORWARD. BECAUSE I WAS PRESSING THE BRAKES THE CAR WAS ABLE ONLY TO JERK FORWARD. I HAD TO SWITCH TO NEUTRAL TO PREVENT CAR JERKING FORWARD. THEN THE ENGINE RETURNED TO NORMAL RPM. THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED THE SECOND TIME. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED IN OCTOBER 2013. ON 1/9/14 I GAVE THE CAR TO A TOYOTA DEALER. THEY SAID THAT THEY WILL TAKE THIS MATTER VERY SERIOUSLY AND THE TOYOTA ENGINEERS WILL COME TO READ THE COMPUTER DATA AND REVIEW THE VEHICLE. AFTER ONE WEEK IT APPEARS THAT NOTHING HAPPENED. I WROTE TO TOYOTA. THEY OPENED CASE #1401231137. AFTER THAT THE DEALER KEPT THE CAR FOR ANOTHER WEEK BUT "COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM". THEY OPENED THE CASE #140230518. FINALLY, TODAY 1/25/14 THEY GAVE ME THE CAR BACK WITH A STUPID ADVICE "NOT STEP GAS AND BRAKES AT THE SAME TIME". THEY SAID THEY TEST DROVE THE CAR, BUT THE MILEAGE IN AND OUT IS THE SAME (6,085). I BOUGHT THE CAR NEW AND IT NEVER WAS IN ANY ACCIDENT. NOW I BELIEVE TO EVERY CLAIM OF UNINTENDED ACCELERATIONS OF TOYOTA VEHICLES. I HOPE THE FEDERAL AGENCY WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 6000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTMZF4DV2B5.

TOYOTA RAV4 2011 car safety problem was reported on July 17, 2014.TOYOTA RAV4 2011, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . WHILE APPROACHING AN INTERSECTION ON A BUSY THOROUGHFARE, THE LIGHT TURNED YELLOW AND AT THE LAST MINUTE I DECIDED AGAINST RUNNING THE YELLOW LIGHT AND APPLIED MY BRAKES VERY HARD. THE VEHICLE STARTED TO SLOW DOWN BUT AS I APPROACHED THE STOP LINE MY VEHICLE CONTINUED TO SLOWLY MOVE FORWARD NO MATTER HOW HARD I PRESSED ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. AT FIRST I THOUGHT MY BRAKES HAD FAILED, BUT THEN I HEARD THE WHINE OF THE ENGINE AND I REALIZED THAT I WAS FIGHTING AGAINST AN ACCELERATING ENGINE. I PUT THE VEHICLE IN NEUTRAL WHICH I THOUGHT WOULD KICK THE ACCELERATOR BACK TO NORMAL BUT THE ENGINE WAS STILL REVING QUITE HIGH, BUT I WAS NO LONGER MOVING FORWARD. I THEN SHIFTED TO REVERSE AND THE VEHICLE STARTED TO BACK UP EVEN THOUGH MY FOOT WAS STILL ON THE BRAKE. AT THAT POINT I PLACED THE VEHICLE BACK INTO NEUTRAL AND TURNED THE ENGINE OFF. AFTER ABOUT 10 SECONDS, I RESTARTED THE ENGINE AND IT PERFORMED NORMALLY. I DROVE 6 BLOCKS TO MY DESTINATION, PARKED THE CAR, CALLED THE DEALERSHIP AND HAD THE VEHICLE TOWED THERE. I DID NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING THE VEHICLE, AS I THOUGHT TOYOTA HAD SOLVED THE PROBLEM OF UNATTENDED ACCELERATION. OBVIOUSLY NOT. THE CAR IS CURRENTLY AT THE DEALERSHIP AND I AM WAITING TO HEAR FROM THEM AS TO WHAT THEY FIND. FROM THE REPORTS I HAVE READ, I'M NOT HOLDING MY BREATH. THEY MENTIONED THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE TO CALL FOR AN INDEPENDENT ENGINEER TO ASSESS THE VEHICLE, AND THAT MIGHT TAKE UP TO A WEEK. I HAVE NO GRUDGE AGAINST TOYOTA, AS I ALSO OWN A 2002 CAMRY WHICH HAS BEEN A FANTASTIC CAR WITH NO PROBLEMS. I JUST DON'T BELIEVE THAT ALL THE REPORTS OUT THERE ARE BECAUSE OF LOOSE FLOOR MATS, STICKY ACCELERATORS OR CON ARTIST TRYING TO GET MONEY OUT OF A BIG CORPORATION. PLEASE LOOK INTO THE ELECTRONICS OF THESE CARS AS SOMETHING IS NOT COMMUNICATING RIGHT. THANK YOU..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 45000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):2T3BF4DV3BW. Toyota Rav4 2011 problem was reported in OREGON CITY, OR. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
